The weekend before last we brought our 24 sheep home to Bolwarra! They seem to be settling in to their new location quite well. There is more grass here and after a week of frequent rain there is some green pick coming through which they love! My husband just paid $18 for a 20kg bag of oats at the local feed store (cough, splutter!) - I think we're going to have to find a farmer we can buy oats and/or hay from directly!
We've had to catch the sheep and change a few torn coats. I'm going to have to mend some coats I think. Why is it always the black sheep, whose wool most needs protection from the sun, who manage to get tangled in their coats?!!
It's very easy to see the sheep from the house here, so if any coats are dragging or there are any problems we can be onto it quickly.
I haven't set up my 'wool room' yet but I hope to get it organized as soon as I've bought some more shelving! Then I can unpack the boxes and bags of tops and yarns!

Million Paws Walk for the RSPCA

I've signed up to do the RSPCA Million Paws Walk again this year, on 15th May! I'm hoping our rather lazy Golden Retriever 'Bonnie' will last the distance. It turns out that this year one of the Walk locations is right here in Portland, Vic and we have already walked the track! Bonnie did require a few rest stops though!!
If you would like to help me fundraise for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, here is the link to my fundraising page: https://mpw-vic-2016.everydayhero.com/au.jenni-1
